If you've seen The Matrix (which sadly I can't assume anymore because it's now a movie old enough to drink legally and likely makes me out of touch with pop culture references), you'd say I had a glitch this morning. It's not the first time: I get deja vu regularly, and it's weird every time.… Continue reading Deja Vu Slalom
Ok. I know part of home ownership is critter management, and the occasional run-in with THINGS that think it's acceptable behavior to invade/explore/hunt in my house. Please recall my incident last spring with a demon house centipede or ALL THE WASPY GOODNESS earlier this summer. The ants. You guys. The ants. Sometimes I think if… Continue reading Of Ants and Corpses
This isn't a real post. If you've been keeping up, you already know I grilled the spicy fly nest I found in the lid of said grill over the weekend. Then I grilled the wasp investigation team that filled up the grill on Sunday to check out the dead nest. Yes, I'm mean. No, I'm… Continue reading Update: Invasion
File this under "things that sound made up, but aren't" and "why doesn't this shit happen to anyone else". Yesterday, I grilled wasps, but not for dinner. I mean, I know eating bugs is a thing in some cultures (no, I never tried fried grasshoppers, even when I lived in Houston). I know people like… Continue reading Yesterday, I Grilled Wasps
My radiation appointments are the same time every day, which means I see the same people in the waiting area every day. Three of us have the 8:10/8:20/8:30 time slots. Today the dude after me said "the other day you were a Norwegian Goddess*" and went on to talk about how he recently discovered Norwegian… Continue reading Even Valkyries Have Doctor Appointments
The Evil Overlord has been ill for some time now, and while I often find her company unacceptable I will say she's been more available for naps. I approve. Sometimes I sleep on her feet because they're offensively cold. Sometimes I bite them anyway. I follow her all around the house so I can keep… Continue reading Day 1035 of Captivity
Not my last port stick, but last time I'm hooked up to an IV tower. Yes, we all wear masks the whole time, now. Check out my total lack of eyelashes! Disclaimer: I didn't sleep until 5am today (3 whopping hours WOO) because I'm out of sleep aids for the steroid chemo day insomnia. This… Continue reading Yes, I’m Tired of Cancer Updates Too.
Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
When I started this blog and called it "Escape on a Page" I intended to keep my writing life separate from my weird random blogging life. Yep, I recognize that was pretty stupid for me. Hey, if you can do it I'm envious of your organization and compartmentalization skills. I suck at compartmentalizing, and honestly… Continue reading Raising The Freak Flag
A couple of weeks ago I had the last infusion of AC and last week I started my 12 weeks of Taxol. Doxorubicin (the A of the AC...don't ask me why, medical jargon makes zero sense to me most of the time) is the one often called the Red Devil, because it has dangerous side… Continue reading The End of the Red Devil and Other Random Events
